Do you need help? No matter what your situation, we have a program to help fit your needs – we will even help feed your pets with our Paws to Feed Program.
The Pantry fits most people as a place you can come once every week and pick up a couple bags of groceries. Our Pantry is open to all who need food assistance. You will need to fill out a questionnaire and sign a release the first time you come, and we will visit your home sometime after that, but you will receive food that day and once every week for as long as you need it.

The HHP Healthy Living Project will start in the near future to provide information and training on how you and your entire family can live healthier lives. This will include healthy cooking classes, and classes and seminars on other health issues. From time to time, other products that can assist in healthy living will be made available to the members of this project.
Your needs are different when you are Living on the Streets. We recognize this, so starting in late April 2012 we brought what you needed to you 7 days a week with our mobile food pantry.
When you sign up for the Pantry and mark that you have pets on the questionnaire, you are automatically signed up for Paws to Feed. We also have a program for the pets of the homeless. Contact us for more information.
This program is for college and university students (undergrad or graduate) who do not have enough food. It can be tough to buy food after you’ve paid for rising tuition, textbooks, parking fees, and all those other college expenses. Sometimes student aid isn’t enough to feed yourself, too, and it’s tough to concentrate on classes when you’re hungry.
The San Bernardino area, home to several colleges and universities, has a high rate of students who are struggling to get by. Helping Hands Pantry’s Student Food Assistance Program is here to help. Contact us and a sign-up form will be sent to you, or download the College and Grad Student Assistance Program PDF.
This program works with the USDA to provide food to San Bernardino residents on the first Friday of every month. We offer USDA food distribution to 504 families in San Bernardino on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t worry, if you miss out on the USDA distribution, you can still sign up and get food from the pantry.
